Hoher Hirschberg ramble

Walkingroute to the Mountain Inn Hoher Hirschberg.

From Sammelplatz start walking east on a narrow lane with a gentle but steady rise to the highest point – Hoher Hirschberg. This easy hiking route takes you along meadows and woodland and past typical Appenzell farmhouses. Magnificent panoramic views and the delightful Gasthaus Hoher Hirschberg invite you to linger awhile. To the south you can see the Alpstein massif, and to the east the peaks of the Vorarlberg beckon. While the children have fun in the play area, you can enjoy a coffee and a slice of homemade cake on the large summer terrace.

 

On the descent follow the same route as far as Hütten. At the crossroads walk along the tarred «Flurstrasse» in the direction of Appenzell, keeping the Alpstein always in sight. This takes you back to Sammelplatz.
